ICF Accessories Energy Stick
How do you improve an Insulated Concrete Form wall that already
out-performs most wall systems in all climates? You move the concrete
mass toward the living side of the wall. This unbalanced R-value will
allow the mass to be closer to the living temperature of the conditioned
space allowing for a more comfortable building.
The Fox Blocks design team had two goals: 1) Move the mass
away from the harsh temperatures and 2) Increase R-value. Each Energy
Stick is 8" wide, 32" tall, 2" thick and profiled to fit within all Fox Blocks.
The Energy Stick is used to ensure an R-8 boost to the already high
R-Value of Fox Blocks.
SIZING AND ACTUAL R-VALUE
6" Block + 1 Energy Stick (R-30+*) = 4" Concrete
8" Block + 1 Energy Stick (R-30+*) = 6" Concrete
10"Block + 1 Energy Stick (R-30+*) = 8" Concrete
10"Block + 2 Energy Sticks (R-39+*) = 6" Concrete
12"Block + 1 Energy Stick (R-30+*) = 10"Concrete
12"Block + 2 Energy Sticks (R-39+*) = 8" Concrete
12"Block + 3 Energy Sticks (R-48+*) = 6" Concrete
* This represents the overall average wall R-value. As an
example in wood frame construction a wall with R-19 batt
insulation will have an overall average wall R-value of less
than R-16 due to thermal bridging.
